    The ABs preferred option was for the Bledisloe to be played behind four legs, but the ARU wouldn't have a baa of it.

    I don't personally think it should have been a Bledisloe Cup game - official test status would have been enough - but, aside from that, I'm looking forward to this one. People who've read my posts would know of my wish to see rugby establish itself in Asia (and all the frustrations that go along with that) and hopefully this can be another small step along the way.

    For me, 3 things will determine how successful the game was:

    1. The number of Chinese faces in the crowd... While the Sevens is a huge event in HK each year, the 95% Chinese majority doesn't usually take much interest in the game. There won't be the 30 000 overseas visitors that there are for the Sevens, so it will be an interesting gauge of the sport's local mainstream potential. A sea of white faces would not be a good sign!
    2. Media interest in Hong Kong and the surrounding region... This will be another test of the game's reach in HK, as the media reflects the general population. Also, if the game results in knock-on coverage in the surrounding region, that would be a big bonus.
    3. The game doesn't suck butt... Well, at least they got the right teams involved

    The main stadium in Hong Kong holds about 40 000 people.
